REI Water Bottle Review by a 5th Grader

Posted By: The Ski Channel on May 11, 2011 8:59 am

Parker Russell is a 5th grader.  He can also shred like no other. Parker and his brother Nick are Squaw Valley ski lovers who have specifically won the hearts of the team at The Russell borthers are only 9 and 11 years old but they are riding the mountain better than the adults!  I’m going to put myself out there and say they are better then me.  I mean, that hurt a little but I had to be honest.

Parker begins his gear assessment of the REI Water Bottle – Flat Oval Poly Bottle 8 fl oz by writing, “Finally, a water bottle that can fit in a ski pant pocket! Holding 8 fl. ounces for $2.00. Jumping off huge cliffs is no problem because you cant feel the water bottle. You can also link turns up without duress.”

I would like to thank Unofficial Squaw and specifically Parker for his concise and excellent gear review.  Hey Parker, would you like to do some more gear reviews?  We will be having some gear in need of review soon.  Just think about it, okay?
